Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Thanks for all your empathy and sharing last week when I shared a poem about sad books. You guys are the best. This week, I’m sharing another poem written for BookSpeak, but this one is actually in the book!
This poem’s also in a video I made recently! If you’re a teacher or librarian, you might like a video I just sent to my Salas Snippets subscribers. It’s about 20 minutes of my reading poems from BookSpeak and getting kids excited about reading as the school year begins. It’s suitable for all elementary ages and perhaps older, depending on your students. Just subscribe to my newsletter and I’ll resend the link next week to any new subscribers. The video will be available through September.
Ramona at Pleasures of the Page has the Poetry Friday Roundup this week!
PS I’m going to be disconnected all weekend, so it won’t be easy to reply to comments. I’ll be reading them, though!
